A Place to Call
Summit Pointe provides
unique residential experience
Imagine a group of men and women
coming together and creating a family--
at Scranton’s Summit Pointe that is
exactly what happened.
For Tom Smith, property manager,
Summit Pointe is all about building a
sense of community. From hosting
events like “Yappy Hour” for pets and
“Sweet Treats,” to community members
exercising together, it is hard not to feel
a part of something special.
“We recently went through a
rebranding, and we are really focused
on engaging the residents,” he said.
“Last month was resident appreciation
month and we had a new event every
week to celebrate our residents.”
Summit Pointe regularly hosts
community-building events and
activities. With new additions like a
stair challenge and a bark park, there
is always something to do on site. For
residents who wish to venture off site,
its convenient location means that a
wide variety of places to go and things
to do are always close by.
With nearly 400 residents, Summit
Pointe boasts a diverse community
of adults, children and even pets.
Residents can sign both short-term and
long-term leases and apartments range
in size from one- to three-bedrooms.
Morgan Properties took over Summit
Pointe in 2007, although the property
has existed since 1968.
According to Mr. Smith, the diversity
of residents helps keep the community
alive and thriving.
“We always have extra basketballs in the
office, and we usually have the fridge
stocked with popsicles, and we always
provide coloring books and sidewalk
chalk, so everyone can have fun,” he
said. “For the dogs, we always try to
have treats for when they stop by on
their walks. We want to engage our
community and we try to go out of our
way to achieve that goal.”
